India’s PM Modi secures second term & stronger majority, exit polls show

India’s PM Modi secures second term & stronger majority, exit polls show”

Seeking to set the record straight on speculations of him being in the prime ministerial race, Gadkari asserted that the new BJP-led government will be formed under Modi's leadership. A BJP leader, requesting anonymity, said, "NaMo TV was meant as a tool of BJP campaign for the Lok Sabha election". Votes will be counted on Thursday and results are likely the same day.

While Uttar Pradesh, a key state with maximum number of Lok Sabha seats at 80, the exit poll results forecast contrasting results. The index closed trade at 30,759.70 up by 4.45 per cent.

The Republic-CVOTER exit poll predicted 38 seats for the BJP and Apna Dal and gave 40 seats to the SP-BSP-RLD alliance and two to Congress.

Modi and Shah at a press conference on 17 May had exuded confidence that the saffron party-led alliance will return to power, and exit polls have furthered boosted their hopes. The 48-year-old also rallied support from the public as an experienced politician from the Nehru-Gandhi family, which has occupied a prominent place in the politics of India since the country's inception in 1947 when his great-grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru, became Lok Sabha's first prime minister.

"We expect change within the margin of error, but as all polls are in one direction, it is unlikely the results will be completely in reverse", Bhawesh Jha, the founder of polling company CNX, told Reuters.

Modi and his BJP faced criticism in the run-up to the election over unemployment, in particular for failing to provide opportunities to young people coming on to the job market and for weak farm prices, all of which will be pressing issues for any new government.

Modi ordered air strikes on a suspected militant camp in Pakistan, which led to a surge in tension between the nuclear-armed neighbors.

India Today predicted a massive majority for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh.

BJP is wanting to make inroads in West Bengal. "But, by and large, what comes out in the exit polls also reflects in the results", Gadkari said, replying to a query.

Delhi witnessed a triangular contest among the BJP, AAP and the Congress.

The 2019 general elections was held in 7 phases from April 11-May 19 to elect the representatives for the 17 Lok Shaba. "Everyone has seen the tremendous support for PM Modi and the BJP in Bengal".
